Not every dog likes giving a blood sample

September 15, 2011

Bright Eyes & Bushy Tails Veterinary Hospital

I know, I know. I'm only supposed to post "warm and fuzzy" pictures. But some of our patients are healthy enough that they would rather stay home than have bloodwork. For anyone who thinks that every dog and every single cat loves to pose for a blood sample at BEBT, I'm sorry to shatter that illusion. :-)

Actually I took the picture because the dog was truly calmed by the "better safe than sorry" stance with the temporary muzzle and available triple-bear hug by three experienced licensed technicians plus Dr. Busick capping the sample. I'm not a talented photographer and it's a cheap camera with the flash off: if anyone was struggling the picture would be blurry with motion artifact.

Just hugging the puppy in a different way for a different reason. Responsible care sometimes looks mean, but I don't like to have my blood drawn either and I know the reason. Keep up the good work. 13 hours ago - Like

That's why it's "F." Max Gurtovoy. I think there is no risk of confusion.
